For the 2nd day in a row, no Rita? We’re not huge fans of all her politics, but during Fallas, you have to love Valencia’s mayor. She missed a great mascletà today.  Tons of falleras were in the crowd, to see a display that was classic in every sense, with fireworks that never let up and built steadily to a great finale. ¡Qué bote HolaValencia!

Today, the world is celebrating the Day of the Woman, and this afternoon’s mascletà kept with the theme — pyrotechnic company Martí (Burriana) is led by a woman. And… are there any sexists left out there, who think a woman can’t put on an incredible fireworks show? Because today’s was one of the best we’ve seen — an incredible, everlasting finale had the crowd going nuts.

Estoreta-2010

What little troopers! The kids marching in this morning’s Cant d’Estorta had to brave the nasty weather which has put a real damper on Fallas.  From the warmth of a cozy cafe, we watched cute, shivering children re-enact famous scenes from history. "Brrrr", I thought, eating my piping hot patatas bravas, "those poor, freezing, ADORABLE kids!"

Many of the mini-floats were great, but we especially loved the hot air balloons. Good job kids!  It’s never too young to learn that art is all about suffering and misery.

Today’s mascletà was insanely loud. I don’t know what happened; I thought I was just being whiny and sensitive, but when I looked around, everyone else in the crowd had blood gushing out of their ears, too. It was crazy… as if they used some different kind of gunpowder. "Bastard Brand Gunpowder: Damage Guaranteed!"

As you’ll see in the video above, this Mascletà came straight out of hell. It was just plain sick (mostly, in a good way) and was so intense it could have easily been one of the last Mascletàs.
